Ranking The Giants: Defensive Line

We continue to Rank The Giants, and today, we Rank the Defensive Line. For years, the defensive line has been the staple of the Giants. But, for whatever reason, this year was different. Injuries played a role, for sure, but the lack of a consistent pass rush hurt the Giants. JUSTIN TUCK: Tuck played most […]

Rough Year For The Defensive Line:

I will never be an excuse maker for poor play but as I was reading today I began to put together a list of injuries to the defensive line of the Giants from this and the previous season.  They are in no particular order. Jay Alford was lost to a torn anterior cruciate ligament during […]

Jay Alford Out for Season

According to Mike Garafolo of the Star-Ledger, defensive tackle Jay Alford will undergo surgery on his knee, and will be placed on season ending injury reserve. Bad break for Alford. He was becoming an important part of the Giants defensive line. I suspect that the Giants will try to sign a defensive tackle off the […]

Players Out for Jets Game

Here are the players ruled out for tomorrow’s game against the Jets: WR David Tyree (hamstring) LB Antonio Pierce (foot), CB Aaron Ross (hamstring), CB Stoney Woodson (ankle), DT Chris Canty (hamstring), OL Orrin Thompson (thigh), RB Andre Brown (achilles), DT Jay Alford (knee) and LB Michael Boley (hip/PUP)

It’s Time To Test That Vaunted Giants Depth

Everyone (including me) says that the Giants have phenomenal depth. Defensive line is stacked, we’ve all said. The secondary is young and full of talent. But, with injuries to Chris Canty, Aaron Ross, Jay Alford and many more recovering from injury, it’s time to know what this depth we’ve all touted is made of. Defensive […]

Canty Uses Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy for Hammy

This is a lot of medical jargon, so I’ll have the Star Ledger explain it: When Giants defensive tackle Chris Canty met with team doctors in New York Monday, coach Tom Coughlin said he received additional treatment “to try to speed the healing” of his hamstring tear. The procedure he had done was the cutting-edge […]

DeOssie To Short Snap:

From The Star Ledger: Asked what the difference between snapping for field goals and punts is, Zak DeOssie cracked, “About eight yards.” Translation: DeOssie, who has served as the team’s long snapper for two seasons, doesn’t foresee any hitch in taking over short snapping duties in the wake of Jay Alford’s knee injury. Alford, who […]

Alford Has Two Torn Ligaments:

From As we’ve previously said, probably more than a few times, the top priority for the preseason is to emerge from the four games (five for the teams tapped to play in Canton) with minimal injuries. The Giants picked up a potentially significant one on Saturday night, with defensive tackle Jay Alford reportedly suffering […]

Alford Tears MCL, Canty Has Tear In Hamstring

Bad news for Jay Alford: His injury is worse than expected. Instead of a sprained knee, he has torn his MCL, and and a partial tear of his ACL, according to multiple outlets. The approach is wait and see–he will try to strength his knee over the next two weeks, and then Giants doctors will […]

Alford Sprains Knee:

Defensive tackle Jay Alford, who was having an excellent summer with the Giants, had to be carted off the field tonight but the initial diagnosis is that he only has a sprained MCL in his left knee. “I hope that’s all it is,” Tom Coughlin said. “But they have to go through all the tests.” […]
